  1. handcut dovetails

    So I am practicing handcut dove tails. I am up to cut 12, still a few minor things im not happy with but my OCD wont be happy till there are no mistakes!! Below is attempt 12 So my issues here were the knife wall for the middle pin was compressed, you could see from the inside. The finish on the proud parts of the joint was rough. I find that when chiselling out the waste my chisel doesn't seem to cut very well on chop cuts. I literally sharpened them before I started the joint as well!! Maybe I am being a bit too aggressive, or could it just be that pine compresses more easily? Hopefully 13 will be my lucky One!!
  2. Despite having a BIG crick in the neck ( must of slept wrong) decided to try again with these fancy dovetails.. Place is still an organized mess, but things are moving along. Fine tuning the first corner, and also laying out the cuts for corner "B". There IS a knife to mark the lines, sitting there. The sharpie is more for marking the mating corners, like "A-A" so I can keep things in order. Almost cut the wrong end, so the sharpie came out. The idea is to stand one part up onto the other, and then mark the lines with the knife. That saw there then cuts ( or tries) on the "waste" side of the lines. Then a bunch of chopping with the stable of chisels. There is an area on the sides of each joint that are just miter cuts. After chopping out the tails on this one, there miter cut is carried across the short rebate on the end. Takes a bit of cut, fit, cut, and try again. When it looks like I'm getting close. Clamping it up will close things up further, as there is a knife edge at the corner. At least it is still square Need to do the last side, both ends. Then cut a bottom piece to fit in those grooves. Then, maybe a walnut lid, of some sort? This would have been easier in Pine, but I didn't have enough pine scraps of the same size. Might work a little more tonight, after going over to the ER for this neck...
